HYMN, " The Morning Light Is Breaking "
Written by Samuel F. Smith, while a student in Andover Seminary, 1830
Tune, IV ebb.
The morning light is breaking, See heathen nations bending,
The darkness disappears. Before the God of love,
The sons of earth are waking And thousand hearts ascending.
To penitential tears; In gratitude above;
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean While sinners now confessing.
Brings tidings from afar. The gospel call obey.
Of nations in commotion. And seek the Saviour's blessing.
Prepared for ZicMi's war. A nation in a day.
Blest river of salvation.
Pursue thy onward way;
Flow thou to every nation,
Nor in thy riches stay;
Stay not till all the lowly
Triumphant reach their home;
Stay not till all the holy
Proclaim. "The Lord is come!"
